This is the age of content creators and influencers. Many people adore them. But, just being real, these content creators have not really reached that perfect spot where they are “friends” with authorities. You have heard stories of security offers cutting the livestreaming of these creators as they enforce law and order.
Such as what happened to @leaks._.world, a TikTok-famous NPC and cosplayer who brands himself as “King of NPC” on the platform and is boasting over 526,000 followers. In gaming, NPC stands for “non-player character.”
So here’s what happened. During his recent TikTok LIVE, dressed as Spider-Man Miles Morales, security officers approached him, asking him to move off the private property where he is recording.
“Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales” is a video game that centers on Spider-Man’s other alter ego, Miles, instead of the more popular and mainstream Peter Parker.
The content creator did not stop his livestream even if he was already conversing with the police.
“If you’re over there and anywhere on that property, that’s private property,” the guard explained to the TikToker.
“This is public property, the sidewalk, right?” the TikToker responded. “I’m here to respect the rules. My dad works for the police. This is just what I do.”
The security, then, left for a while, but later returned to ask him to move again, but the content creator remained in character.
“Nah, I’m gonna do my own thing,” he told the security, continuing his livestream.
“I need you to move over there,” the police reiterated.
But what happened after is somewhat over the boundaries. He used this character to make a point.
“Do you know who I am?” the TikToker stated. “I’m Miles Morales. I’m not a TikToker, I’m Miles Morales. I save lives every day and this is how you’re gonna treat me?”
Netizens’ reactions are mixed. While others supported him, others denounced his act.
